Sweden’s IT Incident Centre

PTS has been assigned by the Swedish Government to support public efforts to provide protection from IT incidents.

This is done by developing and running a centre for IT incident reporting, Sweden’s IT Incident Centre – Sitic.

This centre is to

  • set up a system for information exchange about IT incidents between the centre and public organisations
  • quickly be able to disseminate information in society about new problems which may disrupt IT systems
  • provide information and advice about preventative measures, and
  • compile and publish statistics as supporting documentation to facilitate continual improvements to the preventative efforts.

From January 1st 2011, Sitic is part of the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency, MSB.
